What's up with this show? All of 5 songs ... and Cumberland starts with a cut-in near the end of the song=(
I know they were supposed to play this venue the day before and didn't cuz of the bust fund benefit. But did they really make their way up to St. Louis the next night just to play a half set? Anyone have more info on this night?

Dec '69 to Feb '70 has a lot of missing chunks in shows, for some reason. Sometimes shows from this era circulated incomplete and then full versions came out (like 1/16/70), so there's hope. Or, maybe another reel just went missing (that happened in several other shows too, where we only have a reel or two - 12/20/69 is the worst example, the Dark Star reel disappeared!).......or, someone just forgot to put another reel on, like in 12/30/69 where there's huge pieces missing.
I'm sure Bear had things on his mind that night.....like "oh no, I'm going to be in jail and nobody's going to tape all these beautiful shows!"

By the way, while mourning the losses, you can console yourself with these beautiful Stars (and complete shows!) -

Here is a newspaper article describing the 2/2/70 show... It started late because the equipment truck was late being released from New Orleans. You will have to enlarge the article. It sounds like a fantastic show.

"the crowd was about half clean-cut students and the other half the sort of group you would expect for a concert by the original san francisco acid rock band..."


well I guess I know what is being played with lunch...

Many of the older shows here only exist today in snippets, possibly because over time parts of the original tapes have been lost or irreperably damaged before they were uploaded. Or the technology at the time made it quite difficult to capture an entire show on a regular basis.

I'm sure there are many here among us who can answer this more specifically than I.

This from the NOTES on one of the SBD sources of this show:

"Notes: This half-hour nugget is all that circulates according to the GD Taping Compendium. However, previous etree database entry shows 54 seconds of Uncle John's Band prior to Dark Star."

This from Deadlist:
"According to DeadBase IX a Lovelight followed Mason's Children."

There has just GOT to be someone out there that remembers this show. Its simply amazing and I can't fathom what the rest of the show was like ... it must have just been incredible. Outside of Dark Star - this snippet can be somewhat disappointing. the Cumberland is cut, the Mason's Children (although hot)is cut abruptly - one of the shows in the archive here lists Lovelight to be in the line-up but it's not there. At the very end of St.Stephen (beuatiful St.) "One man gathers what another man spills" you hear what almost sounds like the drum into to Alligator for a moment- then it sounds like they are gonna finish Stephen- then it slides into Mason's. So who knows what juicy morsels may have come after that and if they slid back into Stephen and finished or what.
And the Dark Star is damn near perfection .... I'm so frustrated!

.....guess i'll just go listen to 2/1/70 again and imagine=/

Get over it!

If you are going to stress so, over cuts to so many of these treasures, you better medicate.

It was 1970 and the band was out on bail for chrisakes. The reel to reel probably ran out, or someone forgot to start it up, or the batteries ran out. Ya think drugs where involved?

At least you can enjoy that beautiful Dark Star in vault quality...
